Day 224 in my journey to a healthier lifestyle for meeting up with Mickey (6 months and 23 days to go)
Today’s plan was to eat in a healthy manner, and I have managed to do that. I feel a lot better than I did last night after having a sugar binge. I feel mellow and satisfied. I don’t mind telling you, I like this feeling. It’s way better than a sugar-crazed crab-fest. You’ve heard of mean drunks? I am a mean sugar-fueled sugar addict.
Jake and Eliza gave me an Artfolds book for my birthday. It’s really a cool idea. You fold each page according to some lines on them. When you’re finished folding the whole book, you have a piece of art, kinda like origami. My book finished up as a Mickey Mouse head. Perfect, right? I love it. And along the way there are quotes by Walt Disney. Well I finally finished all the folding today. And here is a quote that I found particularly fitting for my life right now: “Life is composed of lights and shadows, and we would be untruthful, insincere, and saccharine if we tried to pretend there were no shadows.” Isn’t that cool? Sometimes it’s just good to recognize that life has its ups and its downs. I want to embrace both in my life. I want to savor every experience, even the not so fun ones. I think it’s really the only way to know that you have lived life, and not just sleep-walked through it.
Meet you at the Kingdom!
